We sell new and used books, local artwork, games, and a few quality art supplies.

Need to make space on your bookcase?

Bring us your gently used books and we’ll give you a discount on your next purchase! We also have a “no trash” policy. If we cannot use a book, we either donate it to the library or recycle it depending on the condition. Your books will not end up in the garbage. 


Book Club:

Banned Book Club– every book we discuss has been banned somewhere… read to try to figure out WHY the book was banned, and join us for a discussion –last Tuesday of each month.

Art Critiques:

Every artist needs unbiased feedback as they create their work. On the third Tuesday of the month, bring a couple of projects you have been wanting to discuss to our friendly forum where we all talk about our creations as we work towards self-improvement. All levels and types of art welcome.

Local Artists and Authors

Local artists and authors need a place to show off their wares, but often find it difficult to compete with “big box” published literature and genre specific galleries.  We provide a place where these creators may share their gifts with our community, and have the opportunity to sell their work on commission.  Let us know if you have work you would like to share!

Art Instructors

How Novel likes to offer art workshops. If you have an artistic skill that you would like to share with others, How Novel would love to collaborate to make that happen. Let’s plan a creative event!

Butte is celebrating local history on July 11th, and we’ve got books for that!
